On Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018 the 8th grade students from St. Ferdinand Catholic School along with Religious Education Students participated in one-day Confirmation Retreat at University of Saint Mary of the Lake/ Mundelein Seminary in Mundelein, Illinois. The beautiful and most peaceful retreat place in America.
Retreat is a time away from our normal activities to spend time to get closer with God, to examine the priorities of life and to make concrete and practical resolutions for improvement. Retreat is a powerful step toward personal conversion which each of us need it.
During retreat, Seminarian Sebastian Zebrowski gave the students tour at Mundelein Seminary, where students had a chance to visit a Chapel of The Immaculate Conception, and hear a story about the place that Cardinal Mundelein called " The Heart of the Archdiocese ". The students strolled through the woods and saw the beautiful lake. They visited Library which is known for its exquisite architecture, historic collection, and innovative services. They heard a conference given by Fr. Pawel Adamus, and watched the movie "DO YOU BELIEVE". At the end students participated in the Holy Mass, and returned home.
At the retreat all of the participants had a chance to calm down their self and to experience some deep, moving religious thoughts.
